Slit lamp biomiocroscopy shows a prolapse of the conjunctiva over the lower lid margin in temporal, medial or nasal regions. This prolapsed conjunctiva causes a disruption of tear movement and outflow through the inferior lacrimal punctum, resulting in epiphora Intraoperative Management of Iris Prolapse: Featured article/June 01, 2020: Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy: Featured article/May 15, 2020: Ebola Virus: Featured article/May 01, 2020: Presbyopia Treatment: Featured article/April 15, 2020: Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland: Featured article/April 01, 202 Ptosis, herniation of the orbital lobe of the lacrimal gland, prominent eyelid vascularity, and orbital fat pad atrophy are all complications which may arise from this condition Dermatochalasis is a term used to describe the presence of loose and redundant eyelid skin. It is a common sign of periocular aging and is often seen in middle-aged and elderly people. Although more dramatically seen in the upper eyelids, dermatochalasis can also affect lower eyelids as well. It is commonly associated with orbital fat herniation, known as steatoblepharon, and drooping of the.
.1,5,8,15. Differentiation between these lesions requires a detailed examination which ma Lacrimal gland tumors. Can be classified into epithelial and non-epithelial, with non- epithelial being the most common. Presentation generally involves upper eyelid swelling with a mass, and later symptoms can include globe displacement, ptosis, diplopia, and limited extraocular movements Dacryoadenitis is an inflammation of the lacrimal gland. The initial symptoms typically consist of discomfort in the region of the lacrimal gland (i.e., the superotemporal orbit) and occasionally, pain. 1 However, severe cases may be characterized by swelling, tenderness, heat and redness in the tissues surrounding these glands
Orbital lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) that originates in the conjunctiva, lacrimal gland, soft tissues of the eyelid, or extraocular muscles; it is most commonly extraconal in location Lacrimal gland biopsy (02:05) Medial lid-split anterior orbitotomy (01:59) Transcaruncular access to the medial orbital wall (01:25) Transconjunctival anterior orbitotomy (02:13) Transconjunctival anterior orbitotomy for inferior lateral mass (02:10) Transconjunctival anterior orbitotomy for inferior rectus mass (02:46 Nasolacrimal stents are small diameter tubes placed within the nasolacrimal system to maintain patency. The first described stent was made of silver wire and used by Graue in 1932.  Since that time, various materials have been used, including silk, nylon, polyethylene, and polypropylene.  Today, the tubes are typically composed of. Proptosis is the anterior displacement of the eye from the orbit. Since the orbit is closed off posteriorly, medially and laterally, any enlargement of structures located within will cause the anterior displacement of the eye. Swelling or enlargement of the lacrimal gland causes inferior medial and anterior dislocation of the eye
This condition was initially described by GJ Beer in 1817, and was named blepharochalasis by Ernst Fuchs in 1896. [ 1] The term blepharochalasis originates from the Greek words: blepharon (eyelid).. Identify pre-existing blepharoptosis, brow ptosis, lacrimal gland prolapsed, or horizontal lid laxity. Lateral bulging of the upper lid should be recognised as lacrimal gland prolapse and should be distinguished from pad of fat. Coexistent dermatochalasis of the eyelids and browptosis may be tested by elevating the eyebrows Cat N. Burkat, MD, FACS; Edward J. Wladis, MD. The wide spectrum of orbital diseases — including inflammatory, infectious, vascular, neoplastic, degenerative, and traumatic etiologies — are best differentiated with a thorough history and examination followed by further evaluation with laboratory tests and radiology Sarcoidosis is a multi-system inflammatory disease of unknown etiology characterized by non-caseating granulomas throughout the body. Orbital and adnexal manifestations of sarcoidosis include granulomatous inflammation causing microarchitectural distortion of the lacrimal gland (63%), eyelids (17%), orbit (13%) and the lacrimal sac (7%) (1)
The lacrimal gland is an exocrine gland similar to the mammary gland and salivary gland .The gland is composed of lobules separated by loose connective tissue (Figure 1).Acini are lined with columnar secretory cells, which have been shown to secrete mucopolysaccharides, implying that the gland is a modified mucus gland .Each lacrimal gland lobule consists of many acini and intralobular. Contain cellular elements from ectodermal and mesodermal origin such as hair follicles, sebaceous and sweat glands, ectopic lacrimal gland and cartilage Often associated with other congenital ocular and systemic abnormalities such as oculoauriculovertebral dysplasia (Goldenhar syndrome), Duane's syndrome, coloboma of the upper lid, and lacrimal. ing the function of the lacrimal glands is the Schirmer's test (Figure 2).It is per-formed by first drying the tear film, then inserting a Schirmer strip into the lowe
CCh remains the most common reason for recurrent subconjunctival hemorrhages, causes a wide range of symptoms, including significant tearing, burning and irritation in many older patients, and is easily treated in-office. The mystique remains, but, fortunately, we have good remedies to treat CCh when not overlooked. 1 . James Auran to the position EyeWiki Editorial Board member.. An honor bestowed by American Academy of Ophthalmology Committee members and chairs, the volunteer position encompasses a one-year term and is voted on by the Board of. INTRODUCTION Prolapse of extraconal orbital fat into the eyelids is a common finding generally related to aging phenomena. The fat pockets bulge forward behind a lax orbital septum. That condition is known as steatoblepharon.Prolapse of intraconal orbital fat beneath the conjunctiva is a different phenomenon that presents as a subconjunctival mass rather than a swelling of the eyelid
The incidence of lacrimal gland prolapse has been reported to be 15% in the general population 55 and higher in the aging population. 53 In order to expose the gland, the temporal orbital septum is opened and the central fat pad is mobilized Reposition of the ectopic and prolapsed lacrimal gland by re-fixation to the orbital rim. Prognosis. The initial onset is usually before the age of 20 years, with unilateral or bilateral swelling of the eyelids and conjunctiva which lasts for hours to several days. Proptosis indicates orbital involvement Orbital lymphoma is a B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and in most cases arises from mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (i.e. orbital adnexal MALT lymphoma (OAML)): 50-78% of cases in Western nations, and up to 90% of cases from Japan and Korea 1. It is unclear, however, if MALT exists normally in the conjunctiva of the eye, or whether it represents.
The lacrimal gland is located in the lacrimal fossa lying in the superolateral part of the orbit and its function is to secrete and excrete tears into the superior fornix. (arvojournals.org) The lacrimal gland, cornea, conjunctiva, meibomian, and accessory lacrimal glands have been defined as the lacrimal functional unit (LFU). (arvojournals.org National Health Portal.

The lacrimal gland has a firm, pinkish, lobulated structure, in contrast to the soft, yellow intraorbital fat. The lacrimal gland's anterior border is normally just behind the orbital margin, but involutional changes may lead to prolapse anteroinferiorly, which is prominent on external lid examination Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) is an autoimmune inflammatory disorder associated with thyroid disease which affects ocular and orbital tissues. GO follows a biphasic course in which an initial active phase of progression is followed by a subsequent partial regression and a static inactive phase. Although the majority of GO patients have a mild, self-limiting, and nonprogressive ocular. The plica semilunaris is a small fold of bulbar conjunctiva on the medial canthus of the eye.It functions during movement of the eye, to help maintain tear drainage via the lacrimal lake, and to permit greater rotation of the globe, for without the plica the conjunctiva would attach directly to the eyeball, restricting movement.  It is the vestigial remnant of the nictitating membrane (the. The ovoid mass of a benign mixed tumor of the lacrimal gland is an example of a well-circumscribed benign tumor for which an excisional biopsy is indicated (a tumor rarely seen clinically, but commonly seen in questions on board examinations). Incomplete removal may allow eventual recurrence of a malignant form of lacrimal tumor
Subconjunctival fat prolapse is an acquired herniation of intraconal fat due to the weakening of the Tenon capsule by normal aging, surgery, or trauma. It presents clinically with a fat-containing epibulbar mass in the lateral canthal area. On this page: Article: Epidemiology. Clinical presentation. Radiographic features. Treatment and prognosis Diagnostic Considerations. Please consider the differential diagnoses listed below when diagnosing blepharochalasis syndrome. In particular, blepharochalasis is often confused with dermatochalasis, which refers to the lax and redundant skin most commonly observed in the upper eyelids with aging; however, dermatochalasis is usually not associated with recurrent attacks of edema, cigarette.

Riordan EP, Whitcher JP. 2011. Lids & Lacrimal Apparatus Lacrimal Surgery The lacrimal glands are the almond shaped glands (one for each eye) that give the eye the famous aqueous layer. The lacrimal glands produce tears that collect in the lacrimal sac and then drain through the lacrimal duct into the nose. In modern days, eyelid and lacrimal disorder Ptosis, also known as blepharoptosis,  is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid.The drooping may be worse after being awake longer when the individual's muscles are tired. This condition is sometimes called lazy eye, but that term normally refers to the condition amblyopia.If severe enough and left untreated, the drooping eyelid can cause other conditions, such as amblyopia or.
Sunset syndrome: May result from undetected anterior capsule rupture extending inferiorly allowing the inferior haptic of PCIOL to escape through the defect. Management: Repositioning the implant superiorly. Moving the lens from the capsular bag to the sulcus. Placing the optical portion in front of the iris May be encircled by hyper- or hypo-pigmented halo. Depigmented or hypopigmented punched-out lacunae or fenestration lesions may be evident within larger lesions.

Generally located in the peripheral but may occasionally in the peripapillary region A 43-year-old Caucasian man is referred for evaluation of increased floaters and decreased vision in both eyes for 6 weeks. He is afebrile with no unusual rashes, enlargement of the lacrimal glands, or lymphadenopathy. Review of systems is remarkable for fatigue, frequent headaches, and generalized weakness Furthermore, the lacrimal gland provides growth factors and nutrients and in turn, its function is influenced by sensory nerves. About 20-30% of peripheral axons innervating the cornea are selective mechano-nociceptors, which respond only to mechanical stimuli at an order of magnitude close to that required for corneal epithelial damage. The lacrimal gland, which normally sits in a fossa situated on the posterior surface of the superolateral rim, can prolapse and clinically appear as eyelid fullness. This should not be mistaken for a fat pad. As opposed to the upper lid, there are three fat compartments in the lower lid: nasal, central, and temporal. All three pads are in.

Fishman comment: When a patient presents with double vision, the immediate reaction is to rule out serious neurologic causes such as stroke (CVA), brain tumor, giant cell arteritis, infection, cancer, and myasthenia gravis amongst others. However, it turns out that a leading cause of double vision in older adults is condition termed Sagging eye syndrome Continue reading Heavy eye. Damage or trauma inflicted to the eye by external means. The concept includes both surface injuries and intraocular injuries. During trauma soft tissues and bony structures around the eye maybe involved. 3. • Ocular injuries are classified as open globe, closed globe, and periocular . • Open globe — Open globe injuries have a full. The system is called the lacrimal functional unit. It includes the lacrimal gland, meibomian glands and goblet cells of the conjunctiva. The lacrimal glands are responsible for producing the watery part of the tear film called the aqueous. The meibomian glands are responsible for producing lipids which keep the tear film from evaporating
The lacrimal ductal cyst (dacryops) is an uncommon clinical entity. It occurs anywhere that lacrimal gland tissue is present but most often appears as an expanding mass in the region of the lacrimal gland. The presence involving the medial part of the orbit is rare, ectopic location can be misleading in the differential diagnosis of orbital masses Inspissated meibomian glands are also noted.
